Earlier today, the Senate hosted a hearing on Honorable Michael J. Newman’s appointment to the United States District Court in Southern Ohio. Judge Newman lives in Dayton and has long served the legal community in southwest Ohio. This hearing follows support and reference from Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), who helped recommend Judge Newman for the position.

“For many years, Judge Newman has been a proud example of fairness in our community’s justice system. From his work on veterans’ courts, to his leadership in the Federal Bar Association, to his previous experience as a public servant, it is clear he is prepared to serve the citizens seen before the US District Court,” said Turner. “I am glad to support Judge Newman’s confirmation as a US District Judge for the Southern District of Ohio.”
